The Great American Read Kickoff Celebration

The public is invited to celebrate the launch of PBS's The Great American Read at the Scotch Plains Public Library. We'll discuss the premiere episode (which airs on PBS Tuesday, May 22 at 8:00 p.m.) and the books that did and didn't make the list of 100 favorites, make Great American Read buttons with our button maker, and enjoy light refreshments.

Registration is required - click here for more info and the registration link. Programming for The Great American Read is offered as part of a grant from the American Library Association and PBS.

PBS's The Great American Read is an eight-part series that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey). It investigates how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience.
